MESOP ALERT : THE DIALOGUE PARTNER AS REGIONAL AGGRESSOR – Iran arming Yemen’s Huthi rebels since 2009: UN report

 Agence France Presse – 1 May 2015 – United Nations, United States: Iran has been shipping weapons to Yemen’s Huthi rebels since at least 2009, according to a confidential UN report, indicating that Tehran’s support dates back to the early years of the Shiite militia’s insurgency. The report by a panel of experts was presented to the Security Council’s Iran sanctions committee last week as the United Nations seeks to broker an end to the Saudi-led air campaign in Yemen and a return to peace talks.
